Turn off the TV, save money by not going to the movies… and go see LIVE theater right here on Cape Ann! The talented director, cast and crew of the Cape Ann Shakespeare Company are offering a great production of Shakespeare’s “Tragedy of Julius Caesar”. I was at the dress rehearsal on Tuesday, and really enjoyed it. They act it out with intensity and emotion that totally blows away the barrier of Elizabethan English. This would be a great opportunity to help high schoolers see a text they probably have to read for English class, jump off the page and come to life!
Performances February 27 (opening special: all seats $5) through March 2 are at 8 PM; Sunday, March 3 at 3 PM at the Gorton Theatre (home of the Gloucester Stage Company) 267 East Main Street. Tickets, $15, general; $10, student; $5, youth under 19, are available at the door or may be reserved at firstname.lastname@example.org . More information is available at capeannshakespearetroupe.blogspot.com and Facebook.
The cast includes David Adams, Jonathan Arnold, David Cluett, Stephanie Cochran, Richard Crowell, Timothy Edwards, Ashlee Holm, Ray Jenness, Ian O’Connor, Craig Owen, Dominic Parry, Matthew Recine, Jim Robinson, Jessie Sorrells, Ken Stoeffler, and Pauline Wright.
